Mothing at St Margaret's

Most of the Moth lists and Photographs are from my garden (TR359450) in the village of St Margaret's at Cliffe in Kent. It is situated about 1Km from the sea and has farmland with in 100 metres. The garden is well shrubbed and about 1600 sq metres. I normally run a 125 MV lamp and a 15W actinic light over-night and once the season gets going a couple of other traps. At the moment both are 25W black Lamps. previously I used a 160W blended lamp in one of them. All traps are home made. Trapping dates refer to the date the trap was put out.
I try and identify all the Macro Moths, with the micros I am not at all systematic, I do more than I used to with the help of the new book, but there are some that do get through.

Species List for 14/7/2013

Predictably the day after our Garden Safari Weekend it was the biggest moth night of the year. A relaxing day enabled be to have a good loom at some of the micros that I didn't know. As well as three new tortrix species there a Common Lutestring  was also new for the site. Altogether there were 356 moths of about 89 species including 90 micros of 32 species. Of course Privet and Lime Hawk-Moths turned up, a day too late to have a starring role.
